ENERGY, EMISSIONS, AND SOCIAL CONSEQUENCES OF TELECOMMUTING
This study considers the following: 1. The implications for energy use, emissions, and highway needs of the effects of widespread telecommuting on urban traffic congestion, latent travel demand, and urban sprawl; 2. The potential social impacts of widespread telecommuting; 3. the broader relationship between telecommunications and transportation, and the implications for technology initiatives like the national "information highway". The study is projected to the year 2010.
- This is the first report in the series, "Energy Efficiency in the U. S. Economy".
